앙부일구, Sundial
Korean style of clock? Here is a traditional sundial named by Angbuilgu. This watch uses shadow of middle peak and check the current time by the rotation of the earth. How smart it was.

주소, Juso
Korean style of address system is like this way.
Name of district + location by even or odd number.
Here is 종로 + 1가, which means that you are at Jongro area and current location is 1ga. Did you get it well? When you come to Korea, try to look at district name first and then find number of location. What about your town? Any different compare to your address system?

광화문광장, Gwangwhamun square
Energetic calligraphy on the ground. You can fins this at Gwangwhamun sq. I want to make my handwriting style just like this. If you want to see other types of Hangul, come to Gwangwhamun square. There is a big statue of Hangul creator, the great King Sejong and museum of Hangul.

아파트, Apartment
This is the one that I took a few month ago when I visited Lotte Tower. At that time, wide view and road came to my eyes, but now I see a lot of apartment. Seoul city of Apartment. When I see TV drama, most of the scean is taken at similar type of living structure. What about your town? Lots of apartment either?

샤워타월, Shower Towel
This is what I use everyday when taking shower. And I use 1000won( approx. 1usd) priced simple one. Material is good and easy to use. But it was not easy to fins this things in US when I travelled to west coast of US. Is there any good place to buy these towel in your town? What stuff do you use to take a shower in daily life? Better idea?

핸드프린트, Hand Print
Korean style of Hand print? I found this at Haeundae beach in Busan last Feb. Can you guess whose hand it is? Surely, it is not mine. Do you see any hand print in your town also?
